The Pressure Mapping Software Development Kit (SDK) is an Application Programming Interface (API) that allows users to access the functionality of Tekscan's pressure mapping software. This gives a developer the ability to program an application that controls and interfaces with Tekscan scanning electronics.  Tekscan's Pressure Mapping SDK has a set of functions that call on the Dynamic Link Libraries (DLL) which control data acquisition and analysis. DLLs can be run in Windows 10 or newer and are compatible with any language that can use .NET assemblies.

For efficiency, the Pressure Mapping SDK provides sample code for functions in 3rd party applications, including C#, MATLAB, LabVIEW, and VB, to:

  • Get Data - Communicate with Tekscan data acquisition electronics
  • Record Data - Control acquisition parameters for saving data
  • Read Data - Read data from previously saved files

Ideal for monitoring or conducting repeated tests:

  • Manufacturing (Quality Control, Test, Machine Setup)
  • OEM Product Integration
  • Laboratory Research
